What’s on your Christmas list this year? If Santa could deliver it would you be asking for an easier more simple life? Between juggling work and social commitments, especially at this time of year, it can be hard to see the wood for the trees. At least you can get some new business software which will immeasurably improve your life. Here’s why you need to ask Santa for some Cloud Base Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software for your business this year:
Cost Reduction. Why continue to pay for hosting and IT infrastructure when your business software can be cloud hosted in a secure and carbon friendly environment?
Happy Staff. Who wants to be spending their time reconciling spreadsheets and dragging data from one centre to another in order to figure out what the business needs to do next? You just want to just log on to your system and get real time information which can be sliced and diced as you please in moments and at the touch of a button. So does everyone.
Real Time Information. 2015 should be the year you start to say “NO” to analysing your business post event. Why should you be making all your business decisions based on historic information which is difficult to extract and to time consuming to understand? Start making better decisions faster based on live, real time information.
Increased Profitability. Maybe you’ve come to year end and are taking a decision of what to reinvest into your growing business. If you want profitability and business growth to come first then there can be no better investment than ERP software. Seriously. It will probably pay for itself several times over once you do your cost benefit analysis
Support. Most ERP build in a level of service support when you purchase. For the cloud based options, there is a comprehensive online library which is dedicated to giving detailed help and additional resource to users. This includes FAQs and user guides. It can even include introductions to new features which haven’t yet been released so staff can be trained in advance of an upgrade.
Time. Wouldn’t we all love some more time in our lives! Cloud based ERP can gift you just that. Whether it’s affording you the opportunity to work from home and miss the Monday morning commute, or whether it is helping you generate reports at the touch of a button, cutting down on duplicated work or manual data entry, it’s amazing how much time you will save.
Modular. You might only need certain modules at this stage in your business life cycle but by deploying ERP now you will be future proofing your business for a time when you may need something deeper or more extensive to cover your business needs. When your business grows and you need to add to or modify your processes, you can unlock more, when you need it – literally overnight.
Apps. Not only will ERP software be configurable so that it means something to the people in your business who are using it, if it doesn’t do something which would be terribly useful to your business, you can bet your bippy there’s an app for it. From offline sales and service apps to software integration apps, there’s loads to get your hands on. It’ll feel like Christmas all over again!
Start as you mean to go on. Why put something like this off? When the benefits are so clear and tangible you don’t want to wait until mid-way through 2015 to start looking into this.
